    Since buying my 2012 Ocean 18 months ago I have added:
    • Fitted carpet
    • Front rubber mats
    • New fire extinguisher
    • Slide out rear tray (expensive but oh so worth it)
    • Diamond multi plug
    • Kenwood Sat Nav
    • Above cooker shelf with hooks
    • Small analogue clock (blue tacked to top of dash)
    • Small wardrobe shelf
    • Baskets for cupboards
    • Small tv aerial
    • Outside mat
    • Kampa heater
    • Portable BBQ
    • Mosquito zapper bulb
    • Levelling ramps (don't use them)
    • New jump start power pack (see thread last week)
    • Mini compressor
    • New dashcam

    When I bought it, it came with:
    • LED lights
    • Wind deflectors
    • Towball
    • Cassette awning
    • DSG gearbox
    • All wheel drive
    • Additional matress

    Is there anything I have missed and I really need?

    I stand corrected. I thought they were LEDs. Boo hoo.

    Can someone post a pic of LEDs? Thank you

    Hi there
    I will have a root through receipts and let you know. When the roof it up it is very useful. I think it came from germany, not Brandrup.

    The shelf looks nigh on identical to the one I bought from Calicap.de. Mine however doesn't have the rail underneath. Retro fitted perhaps?

    Yes, calitop (https://calitop.eu/), it cost 90 euros, including postage etc. Seems a lot but after a while you forget the price and realise it is yet another useful little thing.

    The rail and hooks came with it, which are removable. I hang the car keys on them at night, with my watch on the shelf. Then I don't rummage around looking for them in the morning.

    With the roof up, the shelf is very handy for mugs, tea bags, etetc.

    Probably accidental. On a phone it's really easy to do!

    Just been to the site and that shelf looks great - slightly cheaper and smarter than the one on the club shop. On their website it says "no drilling required" - this may be a stupid question, but how does it attach? Does it require and permanent alterations to the Cali? (still to nervous to do anything irreparable to mine!)
